Celebrating the Arthur Miller centennial year, an eye-catching new Penguin Plays edition of the work that established him as a leading voice in the American theater In 1947, Arthur Miller exploded onto Broadway with his first major work, All My Sons, winning both the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play and the Tony for Best Author. The play introduced themes that would preoccupy Miller throughout his career: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. This striking new edition adds All My Sons to the elegant Penguin Plays series—now in beautifully redesigned covers. Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went back to business, making himself very wealthy in the ensuing years. A love affair between Keller’s son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Steve’s daughter; the bitterness of George Deever, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free; and the reaction of Chris Keller to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reissued with a new jacket to mark the publication of the sixth and final collection of Miller's plays, this volume contains four of the most important and famous plays of the American theatre. All five plays were written by Arthur Miller within a ten-year period which began with his first Broadway hit in 1947: 'With the production of All My Sons, wrote Brooks Atkinson in the New York Times, 'the theatre has acquired a genuine new talent.' This hit was followed by an even greater play: Death of a Salesman. 'A great play of our day', wrote the New York Herald Tribune and the play has gone on to become the classic American tragedy of Willy Loman, a salesman who becomes disillusioned with the American dream. The Crucible (1953) was produced during the McCarthy era and became a parable of the witch-hunting practises of a government rooting out Communists. A View from the Bridge (1955) concerns the lives of longshoremen in the Brooklyn waterfront and has remained one of Miller's most produced plays. A Memory of Two Mondays, a one-act play, was written as a companion piece to A View from the Bridge. 'The greatest American dramatist of our age'. Evening Standard

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität zu Köln (Englisches Seminar Uni Köln), Veranstaltung: Arthur Miller, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Arthur Miller zählt zu einem der bedeutendsten Vertretern des amerikanischen Nachkriegstheaters. Miller will sich selbst als Gesellschafts- und Zeitkritiker verstanden wissen. Arthur Miller schwebt ein neues social drama vor, welches nicht nur die gesellschaftliche Unfreiheit und Determiniertheit des Subjekts analysiert und erkennt, sondern außerdem dazu in der Lage ist, zu hinterfragen: Was ist eine mögliche Quelle für gesellschaftliche Wertestandards? Welche Formen des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenlebens sind dazu geeignet, ein Gefühl von Sinnerfülltheit und Selbstrespekt zu schaffen? Das dem griechischen Drama zugrundeliegende Menschenbild, in welchem das Individuum mit seiner sozialen Rolle einen festen Bestandteil der antiken polis darstellt- hilft Miller bei der Fundierung seines Humanismus. Der Mensch steht im Mittelpunkt. In seinen social plays legt Miller sein Augenmerk vor allem auf die Gesellschaft als eine dynamische Entität und auf die Vielzahl von Individuen. Diese konstituieren eine Gesellschaft, in der sie agieren und auf der anderen Seite reagieren. Zur Existenz als Individuum gehört die Identität des Einzelnen. Auf die Problematik der Identitätsfindung und des Identitätverlustes wird am Beispiel der Protagonisten von All my sons und Death of a Salesman eingegangen. Bei dieser Untersuchung ist die Rolle der Familie nicht unerheblich, denn Miller bedient sich bei der Figurenkonstellation in vieler seiner Stücke einer Familie. In der amerikanischen Gesellschaft spielt insbesondere der Mythos des American Dream eine wichtige Rolle. Auch Miller greift diesen Mythos in seinen Dramen auf, jedoch verdeutlicht er in seiner Rolle als Gesellschaftskritiker auch dessen Schattenseiten. Der Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit soll auf einer soziologischen, psychologischen und gesellschaftskritischen Betrachtung der Stücke All my sons und Death of a Salesman liegen. [...]
